Exploring Disability with the Teachers & Writers Collaborative

Open to: All teachers.

Opportunity at a Glance: Unpack our own perceptions of disability and explore the origin of those perceptions through poetry and prose. As a group you will explore the practice of teaching the work of disabled poets and writers. For example, in the media and mainstream literature the predominant narrative is that disability is a tragedy and something to be avoided, or disability is used as a metaphor for evil such as the characterization of disabled figures in the recent films Wonder Woman and Get Out. (Cost: $760.)

Event dates: On going through May 2019.

Location:
 At your school.

Take action: Share this opportunity with your principal and discuss if it is right for your school community.
